A Little Bit Of Honey, A Whole Lot Of Jack
Until or unless someone has sworn off liquor for eternity, everyone has tried Jack Daniel’s once in their life. Jack Daniel’s, without any doubt, is the most sought after whiskey on earth. It is a brand of Tennessee whiskey that is the highest selling American whiskey in the world. It is produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee, by the Jack Daniel Distillery. It’s the oldest registered distillery in the United States. Despite being the location of a major operational distillery, Jack Daniel’s home county of Moore is a dry county, so the product is not available for consumption at stores or restaurants within the county. Last Friday, we went to post launch party of the new drink by them. As we all know that this brand does not debut new liquors often, but lucky us! The Tennessee distillery has introduced ‘Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey’
Talking about this drink, it is the famous JD old No. 7, mingled with a proprietary honey liqueur of the distiller’s own making, resulting in a unique offering for a taste that’s one-of-a-kind and unmistakably Jack. Its taste has solid cinnamon notes accompanied by butterscotch, pear and honey with a floral undertone. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey is the first flavored variant of Jack Daniel’s.
We got to know all about the drink at the tasting. The post launch party was held at Lodi – The Garden Restaurant, Lodhi road. All the things that are to be known about this new drink was told to us and what food will compliment it and what will not.
What made it interesting was that the entire thing was explained by the experts, so we had the best bartender, who before serving us, told all about the history of the cocktails and also the recipes (totally made our weekend).
We tried 6 best ways in which this drink can be had, starting from on the rocks, then mixed with ginger ale and lemonade also known as Jack and ginger and Jack and Honey Lemonade respectively, followed by hot Tennessee toddy and ended with the chilled shots of it.
Our personal favorite was Jack and ginger and that’s also recommended by the folks at Jack Daniel’s.
Now talking about the most important thing, this new JD is readily available at the Thekha near your home at Rs. 4000/- per bottle.
Enjoy and keep safe!
